Wanted: Riccardo Calafiori
Manchester United are looking to sign Roma teenager Riccardo Calafiori.
United scouts have visited Italy to assess Calafiori, 18, on several occasions this season and are clearly impressed with the talented left-back.
According to the Daily Star, Ed Woodward has contacted the player’s agent Mino Raiola, who also represents Paul Pogba and Erling Haaland, to discuss a possible transfer.
Roma have already offered Calafiori a ‘bumper new contract’ in an effort to retain his services but would sell the Italy Under-19 international for the right price.

Kenya international Eric Ouma would love to join Manchester United.
The left-back, who currently plys his trade for Swedish top-flight outfit AIK Fotboll, conducted a Q&A session with fans and declared his love for the 13-time Premier League champions.
Asked his favourite side and club he would love to represent, Ouma responded: “Of course Manchester United.”
Pressed further on who he would pick if he could only choose between United and Arsenal, Ouma was a little less adamant when answering: “I will definitely look at the team with the best offer, and that is the one I can join.”

Jude Bellingham warning
Speculation regarding the future of Birmingham star Jude Bellingham will increase when the season finally resumes.
That’s the opinion of the Championship club’s manager Pep Clotet, who suggests Manchester United could be joined by other clubs in the pursuit of the talented teenager.
“What I’m very happy about now is that Jude is here with us and all the players are here with us as well,” Clotet told Sky Sports. “We focus on that really, but I understand there’s going to be more speculation when the games do come back.
“As a head coach, I don’t deal with transfers, it’s the club. But I can imagine the situation has all the clubs very worried. Possibly it’s going to be a busy summer, possibly it’s going to be less busy, we still don’t know what impact it will have.”
